On Saturday, a Bundesliga match between Union Berlin and Mainz 05 will take place in the German capital. Union Berlin has been on an impressive run recently and because Bayern Munich does not have a game until Sunday, Union has the opportunity to take the lead in the standings with a victory against Mainz.
Union Berlin has been in spectacular form since the World Cup, winning three of its last four Bundesliga games and making it all the way to the DFB-Pokal quarterfinals. It was also desperately needed because Urs Fischer’s team managed just four points out through their final five games before the break, losing to Bochum and giving up 14 goals in the process.
They have steadfastly regrouped after the intermission and returned stronger than ever when it appeared that their top four dreams would vanish into thin air. Despite their erratic play in October and November, they have a home lossless streak of 14 games dating back to last February, when they, interestingly enough, defeated Mainz.
Given that they will soon be engaged in three fronts of combat, the question is whether they can keep up their current level of performance. The club from the capital has a lot to look forward to with a top four, and even maybe an unbelievable title challenge, on the cards in the Bundesliga, a quarterfinal in the DFB-Pokal, and a preliminary round matchup with Ajax in the Europa League.
Let’s check the latest picks, Bundesliga news, stats and Bundesliga expert picks for Union vs Mainz. We’ve plenty of Bundesliga predictions for you to consider.
By defeating Bochum last weekend, Mainz was able to snap a six-game losing streak. They had previously defeated Koln 5-0, and they scored five goals once more in their 5-2 victory, which was motivated by a hat-trick from Karim Onisiwo.
Although Mainz is mired in mid-table, there is no serious fear of relegation, and there is also no chance in hell of making it to Europe. Bo Svensson’s team has also had trouble winning here, losing by an overall score of 7-1 over their last two visits.
It will also be intriguing to observe how the team responds after getting thrashed 4-0 by Bayern Munich in the cup midweek, and whether or not that loss has impacted their confidence moving forward.
